Seriously **** this game

Good idea resting half our team all at the same time, AJ...now everyone is gonna feel like **** tomorrow


Because AJ is clairvoyant and cans foresee a 12+ inning game?


I'm sure he could foresee us not scoring ****

No clue why he had to rest them all at once

He's safe cause Diaz played it like **** too. Get the tag on him and hold it there. If it was a held tag, he came off the bag.

Edit - I actually think Diaz was fooled by him coming in standing up.

Well, Tucker doesn't look good at 1st. Yordan couldn't play the position any worse.

That was a bad 1B by Tucker.

I think it's ok to experiment with him at 1B when we have a big lead...not in a close game

Again...hinched.

It happens

If for whatever reason we don't get HF, we will look back on this game

Ridiculous loss

Yep. AJ mailed it in when he took the lineup card out before the game. I can see resting some players but why in God's name do you sit Alvarez on the same night? The DH needs a rest? LOL

It was routine ball, just like the one he took off the chest an inning before.

Yordan has been either walking to first base or walking his way to home base frequently so AJ wanted to give his hamstrings some rest

Give me a break with this Hinched Bull***** He put Springer in with the bases loaded and 1 out. Springer didn't get it done. He gambled with his best ace in the hole and lost an almost meaningless game.

Devil's advocate: why play your regular guys when Miley is gonna pitch? I think if hinch knew Miley was gonna go 4IP with only 3 runs allowed he might have put a better lineup out there.

Also Biagini stinks. His interview shtick is gonna get real old if he's also a joke on the mound.

Maybe it's because you stayed up late but some of you guys need to chill the eff out on losing ONE game. 5 years ago this team was winning 54 games a year instead of losing that many. Houston hasn't had a sports run like this since the rockets went back to back in the 90s. The astros are 50 games over .500, this Hinched BS is something you'd expect from the zoo. Hope some of you have extra diapers and teething rings on standby because we might (gasp) lose some playoff games too

Reading through the last few pages makes it seem like a bunch of little league dads were watching their kids play. Relax, guys.

Also, as someone who used to say "Hinched" pretty regularly, that term really should have been retired long ago. We've got a great manager.

So is Tucker > Reddick after last night?

It's also ridiculous to see after every loss "if we don't get home field they will look back at this one".

3 games left

1 game up on the Dodgers
2 games up on the Yankees.

We own all tiebreakers.

It was definitely a forgettable night for Tucker after the home run.

Better go 11-0 in the playoffs or this thread will implode

If Hinch doesn't go 11-0 with this team then Crane and Lunhow really need to re-evaluate who they have managing this team

We basically gave that game away when AJ turned in the lineup card and we STILL almost won. I'm just happy Miley looked better and some of our young guys got more reps and our studs got some rest. The win from the night before made last night's game possible.

We're still in the driver's seat while other teams are having to press like crazy...you think the Yankees or Dodgers are resting half their lineup.

I actually like that we have fans who care enough to complain about a mostly meaningless game at 2am.

I do think the term "Hinched" needs to be retired though. We didn't get to Anaheim til 4am Thursday morning. So I don't have any issue with giving most of our guys the night off... especially with the uncertainty of Miley pitching. If the weekend rolls around and we still need a win or two to secure home field, we can always roll out the lineup of death with JV/Cole.

"Hinched" also means winning a World Series and being in prime position for another one.

AJ Hinch is above reproach or criticism from fans. The idea of "play your best players so you win every game" isnt a good one.

This. I know the Angels are missing guys too, but we still put up a fight with Tucker's solo shot and Super Jack's 2 run blast. Pitching was pretty good too, especially from the bullpen.

Also, I would love home field throughout, but I think it matters way more in the ALDS and ALCS than the WS for this club.

I said this the day after he got traded here and I got roasted. glad to see everyone else is finally starting to open their eyes

Tucker has more talent and a brighter future, but we'll see who shows up in October. Like with Beltran and nearly the entire bullpen in '17, if Reddick doesn't come out hot he will get sat pretty quickly...but I do think Hinch will start out with Reddick.
